Which Dwayne Johnson Character Are You, Based On Your Zodiac?

One of the most consistent actors in Hollywood, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is once again riding high thanks to his magnificent voice work in DC League Of Superpets. In the animated movie, Johnson voices Superman’s pet dog, Krypto The Superdog as well as his other DC character, Black Adam.

Though Krypto and Black Adam are super-powered beings who get to deal with unique situations each day, people can relate to some aspects of them. Many of Dwayne Johnson’s other characters are easy to relate to as well, especially when their attributes and mannerisms are analyzed using the 12 Zodiac signs.

Aries – Luke Hobbs (Fast & Furious Franchise)

Dom Toretto faces Luke Hobbs in Brazil in Fast Five

Individuals that fall under the Aries constellation are defined by their courage, passion, and competitiveness. They can have flaws such as recklessness, and impulsiveness. Among Johnson’s characters, such traits fit the DSS agent Luke Hobbs.

As a law enforcement officer, Hobbs knows to act bravely. He hunts down Dominic Toretto and his crew with zeal, leading to some memorable confrontations. Hobbs doesn’t shy away from duels either, whether it’s facing off against inmates or the genetically engineered villain, Brixton Lore. As such he gets to prove himself as one of the most skilled fighters in the Fast & Furious franchise. But it’s Hobbs’ recklessness that gets him outfoxed by Dom’s crew in Rio.

Taurus – Hercules (Hercules)

Hercules leads an army to battle in Hercules

Taureans are dedicated, practical dependable, and hardworking. As for weaknesses, they can be plagued by naivety and stubbornness. Johnson’s Hercules best fits such a description.

As the strongest warrior in the world, Hercules never disappoints when it comes to rescuing victims or leading forces on the battlefield. But as strong as he is, he gets fooled far too easily. Throughout the movie, audiences find it hard to pity him when he is betrayed by Hera as well as King Eurystheus.

Gemini – Joe Kingman (The Game Plan)

Geminis are one of the most adaptable signs of the Zodiac. Some are innovative and comical too. Contrariwise, they can be overly anxious, and inconsistent. A good number of these traits sum up Joe, a quarterback in one of the most inspirational sports movies.

Joe’s discovery that he has an eight-year-old is one that could be difficult for most people to digest, but he quickly adapts to his new role as a father. Stepping up aside, Joe is often undecided on matters regarding his career, something that almost renders him jobless.

Cancer – Davis Okoye (Rampage)

Okoye matches with George in the streets in Rampage

Cancerians have a reputation for being caring, compassionate and protective, and therefore, come off as very maternal. Though not always the case, there might also be vindictiveness beneath the kindness. The Primatologist, Okoye, owns such characteristics.

While most of the characters in Rampage appear keen on harming animals, Okoye goes to great lengths to protect the gorilla, George. Even when George grows in size and goes on a rampage, Okoye chooses to stay loyal to him rather than leave him to the authorities. Sadly, Okoye becomes too obsessed to the point where he is okay with the destruction of other lives so long as George is safe.

Leo – Maui (Moana)

Maui walks on the beach with Moana

Leos stay positive and confident. Such are the attributes of Maui, the deuteragonist of one of the best-ever Disney animated movies. When the coin is flipped, Leos can be self-centered, and boisterous.

Maui has a difficult childhood where he gets abandoned by his parents but remains positive, learns magic, and becomes a great trickster. But as cool as he is, he gets to go his own way when it’s for his own benefit. Such events play out when he abandons Moana after his tense confrontation with the villainous Te Kā.

Virgo – Spencer Strasmore (Ballers)

Spencer holds a football on the practice field in Ballers

Virgos are clever, analytical, and extremely hard-working, but it can get to a point where they always forget everything else. In the HBO series, finance manager/CFO, Spencer, is the quintessential Virgo.

There’s always a lot at stake inside the boardrooms that control the NFL, so Spencer’s prioritization of work is understandable. But Spencer is clearly Dwayne Johnson’s least fun character since outside work, he never gets to have solid relationships or have a good time like the NFL players he represents.

Libra – Krypto The Superdog (DC League Of Super-Pets)

Krypto prepares for takeoff in DC League of Super Pets

Libras are charming, diplomatic, curious, and social. They endear themselves easily to others, making great team players in the process. Yet, they may be controlling, and overly emotional. Such is how one of the best super-pets, Krypto is.

Krypto’s ability to relate well with others as he is able to rope them into his mission easily, and that’s the rescue of Justice League members captured by Lex Luthor. In spite of that, he isn’t too kind to those who oppose him. His controlling nature becomes all too clear when he blackmails Ace into participating.

Scorpio – Bob Stone (Central Intelligence)

Stone intimidates his old buddy Joyner in Central Intelligence

Scorpios are determined, independent, intuitive, and proactive individuals. On the contrary, they may demonstrate blunt and jealous traits. One such person is the rogue agent Bob Stone from Central Intelligence.

That Stone grows from one of the weakest students in his high school to a muscular CIA agent is very impressive. Even more impressive is that he doesn’t mind working alone to bring down corrupt elements. That aide, his buddy Joyner makes it known that he would appreciate it if he wasn’t too rough with him.

Sagittarius – Frank Wolff (Jungle Cruise)

A scene from Dwayne Johnson's Jungle Cruise

Sagittarius is described as one of the most adventurous Zodiac signs. They are energetic, chatty, and cunning, just like the tour guide, Frank. Unfortunately, Sagittarians can possibly be overly spontaneous, and temperamental.

From participating in the 1556 expedition in the Amazon Rainforest to locate the Tears of the Moon to guiding tourists through dangerous, Frank proves that no one dives into escapades better than him. The only thing that makes him unlikable is that he isn’t genuine. His biggest crime is relying on fake actors posing as dangerous tribesmen to make the experiences more fun for the tourists.

Capricorn – Roadblock (G.I. Joe: Retaliation)

Roadblock fires at enemy forces (GI-Joe---Retaliation)-1

Capricorns are driven individuals and are always at their best when they are put in charge. For that reason, they make the best bosses, rulers, and project leads, just like Commander Roadblock from G.I. Joe: Retaliation. On the contrary, they can be condescending.

Roadblock proves himself as the perfect team leader when he leads the surviving Joes on a mission to stop Cobra, who has infiltrated the highest levels of the US government. Despite leading a team that’s short on numbers, he manages to achieve his goal. However, Roadblock is depicted as being harsh on his subordinates who he feels are yet to attain his level of skill.

Aquarius – Smolder Bravestone (Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle)

The gamers arrive inside the game in Jumanji

This smart Zodiac sign is packed with individuals that are progressive and observant. Yet they can be on the pessimistic side. Among Johnson’s characters, Smolder (as controlled by teenager Spencer) from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the definitive Aquarian.

Smolder/Spencer is a great asset to the rest of the players because he understands how the video game works better than anyone else. As such, he is able to analyze situations with ease once inside the game and anticipate all dangers. Still, the number of times he almost gives up is alarming.

Pisces – John Hartley (Red Notice)

Dwayne Johnson's character attends a gala in Red Notice

Pisces are normally gracious and sincere and tend to be artistic too. As for weaknesses, Pisces can come off as weak-willed and indecisive, traits that can be linked to Hartley from Red Notice.

Hartley’s artistic nature is evident from the relentless manner in which he attempts to acquire the ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra’s bejeweled eggs. Still, he gets to make way fewer decisions than his partner in crime, Nolan Booth. There isn’t a happy ending for him either. After going through hell to get the eggs and sell them, Hartley still ends up with nothing since their Cayman Islands accounts containing $300 million get frozen.

Fast & Furious 11’s Franchise-Ending Updates Makes The Rock’s New Hobbs Spinoff Even More Confusing

Summary

Fast & Furious 11 will be the final ride for the franchise, closing the Toretto chapter after many years of success and some recent disappointments.
The status of The Rock’s Hobbs spinoff, Hobbs & Reyes, is uncertain as plans for the franchise’s finale have undergone changes.
While Fast 11 may mark the end of the main series, there is potential for Johnson’s character Hobbs to continue with solo adventures in the aftermath.

The latest update for Fast and Furious 11 suggests the saga truly is coming to a close soon – leaving Dwayne Johnson’s planned Hobbs spinoff in a strange place. After struggling for about a decade to find his footing as a leading man, The Rock finally broke through with his supporting role in Fast Five. His character Hobbs was essentially a human tank chasing after Dom (Vin Diesel) and his gang, and Johnson completely stole the 2011 sequel.

He continued with the Fast and Furious movies for several entries, but after a high-profile falling out with Diesel during The Fate of the Furious, he exited. Of course, Johnson’s stardom was at the point where he could focus on his own project, though he did reteam with Jason Statham for spinoff Hobbs and Shaw. In Fast X’s mid-credits scene, Johnson made a shock return as Hobbs – after previously vowing to never return to the main series. This brief scene teased the upcoming spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, where Johnson’s character will face off against Jason Momoa’s vengeful Reyes.

Before the release of the 2023 sequel, star and producer Diesel suggested Fast and Furious 11 might not be the end, as originally planned. Instead, Diesel said the finale could be extended to two more installments, but following Fast X’s disappointing box office performance, the story will indeed wrap up with one last ride. In a recent Instagram post, Diesel confirmed the eleventh outing will be “the grand finale” – which makes the current status of Hobbs & Reyes a tad confusing.

There hasn’t been much heard about the offshoot since it was first confirmed in 2023, though it’s said to bridge the gap between Fast X and the next outing. Whether this means it will resolve the latter’s cliffhanger ending or feature any other main entry cast members are also unknown.

If
Fast 11
is truly arriving in April 2025, that doesn’t leave much time for
Hobbs & Reyes
to enter production and come out before its release date. Unless the project has already begun filming in secret – which feels very doubtful – there are signs the plan for Hobbs’ next adventure have changed.

When the spinoff was announced, the intention was for Hobbs & Reyes to take place between parts ten and eleven, and set the stage for the latter. Given the tepid response to Fast X, reports suggest the roadmap for Fast 11 has changed. These changes are said to include a new villain to replace Reyes and a more streamlined narrative that will take the series back to basics. Given how bloated the last chapter felt, these alterations sound like they’re for the best, but they don’t bode well for Hobbs & Reyes.

Given that it was Hobbs who pulled the trigger on his father in Fast Five, it makes all the sense in the world that Momoa’s Reyes would seek revenge on Hobbs. If anything, the pairing of Johnson and Momoa sounds epic, and if Fast and Furious 11 truly is getting a new antagonist, it would work in the finale’s favor if Hobbs took down Reyes before then. Again, the lack of visible movement on Hobbs & Reyes puts a giant question mark on it, since it doesn’t appear it will beat Fast 11 to the big screen.

Will Fast & Furious Truly End After Fast 11?
Is it the end of the road for Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs too?

All of this leads to the central question: will Fast and Furious 11 actually end the entire franchise, or will it branch off in a new direction? Assuming Hobbs & Reyes doesn’t beat the next entry to theaters as originally planned, it would be odd for Fast 11 to “end” the saga, only for Johnson’s Hobbs to have a solo adventure straight after. It would be stranger for Hobbs & Reyes to arrive before the next sequel and become a hit, which would surely lead to calls for more sequels, undermining Fast and Furious 11’s ending claims.

The franchise was largely bulletproof for many years, but the reception to both Fast X and F9: The Fast Saga has shown cracks in the armor. Two decades on, it’s about time to wrap up the Toretto chapter and let the family enjoy their barbeques in peace without being targeted by the vengeful third cousin of a past villain. Fast and Furious 11 must deliver on its promise to end this part of the series – but there’s no reason Johnson’s Hobbs couldn’t continue for solo adventures in the aftermath either.

The Rock Will Have To Save Fast & Furious Again 14 Years After Doing It In Fast Five

Summary

The Rock’s return to Fast & Furious signals the end of his beef with Vin Diesel and a pivot in his career.
Fast 11 needs a streamlined approach, shedding excess characters and bloated plots to regain momentum.
The franchise has evolved significantly since Fast Five, but Hobbs’ return may be crucial to its future success.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s first appearance in the Fast and Furious saga drove it to new heights, but over a decade on, can he do it all again? The Rock was such a charismatic presence during his WWE days that he felt like a natural fit for movie stardom – but it was a long road to get there. Most of his early star vehicles like The Rundown underperformed, and he was soon relegated to mediocre kids’ movies like The Tooth Fairy. It wasn’t until he was cast as Hobbs in Fast Five that his star persona finally clicked.

Hobbs evolved from an enemy to an ally of Dom’s (Vin Diesel) crew and scored his own spinoff with 2019’s Hobbs & Shaw. Outside of the Fast & Furious franchise, Johnson’s career took off in a major way too, with a run of hits that included his Jumanji sequels and Rampage. His high-profile falling out with Vin Diesel made it appear he would never return to the main series, but Fast X’s mid-credits sequence revealed Hobbs was indeed coming back, and being targeted by new villain Reyes (Jason Momoa).

Just how much Hobbs and Dom will interact in the upcoming Fast and Furious 11 remains to be seen, but Johnson and Diesel at least appear to be on speaking terms again. Fast X’s Hobbs scene was a genuine surprise to fans, and it couldn’t have happened at a better time. The tenth installment was a troubled production, with original helmer Justin Lin quitting the project and being replaced by Louis Leterrier. The movie’s budget also ballooned to $340 million (via The Numbers), with Fast X’s eventual $714 million gross being seen as a disappointment by Universal.

The sequel was greeted with unenthused reviews too, and there are signs of general audience fatigue with the whole saga. Hobbs was missed during the last two entries, with the character being a good counterbalance to Dom’s self-serious presence, and while Hobbs & Shaw had issues of its own, it was more entertaining than Fast X. Johnson is a natural fit for this intentionally overblown franchise, and he brings a welcome amount of humor and macho energy to proceedings.

Fast & Furious Needs To Regain Momentum Ahead Of Fast X, Part 2
Fast 11 needs to get audiences excited again

A big sin of Fast X is that it reheated plot beats and twists the series had covered already, including yet another villain seeking revenge for the defeat of a family member. Most of the cast were split up into smaller groups, and the film had too many subplots and characters to track. If followers of the series felt fatigued by how bloated the narrative was, the film must have been near incomprehensible to newcomers. There are reports that Fast and Furious 11 will go back to basics, with a simple mission and a new villain.

Stripping away the excess – both in terms of characters and sidequests – will be crucial to Fast 11 regaining some sense of momentum. Even the action sequences in Fast X were lacking in genuine thrills or invention, and for a movie with “Fast” in the title, it didn’t feel very propulsive. Like with the purported superhero fatigue currently affecting the MCU, audiences may be getting weary of Fast and Furious’ bag of tricks. If part eleven is truly the end of the road, it really needs to focus on delivering an emotionally satisfying, flab-free outing.

The Next Fast & Furious Movies Can’t Repeat Fast X’s Mistakes

Alongside the next sequel, Johnson and Momoa will square off in Hobbs & Reyes, which is set to bridge the gap between Fast X and Fast 11. Given the hammy energy Momoa brought to the sociopathic Reyes, the pairing of him and Johnson should make the spinoff a fun one. An advantage of the Hobbs’ spinoffs is they’re free to untangle themselves from the baggage of the main story and can play with the rules a little. Hobbs vs Reyes already indicates a leaner storyline, but the next main entry isn’t so lucky.

Fast X’s cliffhanger ending left too many plates spinning, including the fates of Dom, his son and most of the gang after Reyes outsmarted them all. Presumably, the outcome of this will have to wait until Fast and Furious 11 is released, though if Hobbs and Reyes is set between the two sequels, the spinoff may have to deal with some of Fast X’s fallout too. If the news of the next sequel focusing on a single mission is true, this is a step in the right direction.

The tenth movie pulled itself into too many directions, so Fast 11 needs a streamlined approach. It doesn’t require any more wacky plot twists or surprise family members and must deliver on the promise of closing out the current era of the series. Instead of holding out for yet another sequel, Diesel should focus his creative energies on giving Dom and pals the sendoff they deserve, and realize that Fast X’s maximalist hurt the movie.

Johnson’s Fast and Furious comeback is exciting because it means the beef between him and Diesel is officially squashed, and that Hobbs is no longer an outcast from the main storyline. That’s all good news, but in reality, Johnson’s career outside the property has changed in recent years. While his box office record was once unimpeachable, Johnson’s returning off the back of the high-profile failure of Black Adam, and the critical drubbing faced by projects like Red Notice.

In truth, the decision to return to Fast and Furious was likely to give his own career a little boost. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but while he’s arguably the biggest star of the main cast, The Rock could use a couple of solid box-office hits too. The main Fast and Furious films have changed a lot since Hobbs’ debut in the fifth film. Fast Five officially marked the turning point where they switched from street race action movies to the global-hopping blockbusters they transformed into.

The series is barely recognizable from its early days and has only become more outlandish. Hobbs’ return obviously won’t have the same impact as his Fast Five introduction, but it should at least signal the end of the series is near and all the key players will be there. If the franchise is to continue beyond the Toretto clan, Johnson’s Hobbs is the natural way to go, so he may be responsible for saving Fast and Furious in more ways than one.

Fast & Furious 11’s Franchise-Ending Plans Reaffirmed By Vin Diesel In Emotional Development Update

Summary

Fast & Furious 11
marks the end of the mainline franchise, with Vin Diesel confirming the finale in an emotional Instagram post.
Diesel shared that story meetings for the movie are complete, promising an incredibly powerful conclusion to the Fast Saga.
While the mainline franchise will conclude with
Fast & Furious 11
, spinoff films like
Hobbs & Shaw
will continue the series in the future.

While progress continues on the various spinoffs, Vin Diesel reaffirms Fast & Furious 11 will be the end for the mainline franchise in a new development update. The next installment in the long-running action franchise had been announced at the same time as Fast X’s development, with the plans for the movies to be a two-part sendoff for the series. After an initial pause due to the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA strikes in 2023, Universal quickly got to work on putting together the script for Fast 11, with subsequent reports varying on how it would tackle its predecessor’s cliffhanger ending.

With just over a year remaining until its scheduled release date, Diesel took to his Instagram to offer an update on Fast & Furious 11’s development.

In his post, as seen above, the star/producer emotionally reflected on the franchise’s journey thus far, particularly as he reaffirms that the next movie will be the end for the mainline franchise. Diesel also offered a promising update on the movie’s development, confirming that the story meetings are finished and promising a finale in which “incredibly powerful is an understatement”.

Will The Fast & Furious Franchise Continue After 11?

Despite once being a dominant franchise at the box office, the end for Fast & Furious quickly seemed inevitable in recent years as the financial returns began dropping. While F9: The Fast Saga’s box office numbers could be chalked up to its mid-pandemic release, Fast X’s didn’t fare much better, despite touting a production budget over $100 million larger than its predecessor. This all points to a general waning interest among audiences akin to the recent superhero fatigue affecting the Marvel Cinematic Universe and remaining DC Extended Universe releases.

Though Diesel’s post confirms the end of the mainline franchise, it doesn’t mean Fast & Furious can’t continue after the upcoming eleventh movie. It was confirmed in mid 2023 that development was underway on a new standalone sequel entitled Hobbs & Reyes, with Dwayne Johnson continuing his role after his surprise return in Fast X and Jason Momoa reprising his villain role. Around the same time, Johnson also confirmed that Hobbs & Shaw 2 was still in development, but that those plans were postponed in favor of the movie bridging the gap between the tenth and eleventh movies.

Additionally, plans for a female-led Fast & Furious spinoff were announced in 2019, with Charlize Theron expected to reprise her role as the villainous Cipher for the project, though very few updates have been shared in the years since. Given Universal seems to be generally reconfiguring their plans for the franchise’s future, it remains to be seen whether these spinoff plans will come to fruition after Fast & Furious 11. One can at least hope that Diesel’s promise of an epic finale proves to be true with the extended development time given to the next installment.
